    For many years Margaret was the most wonderful babysitter to my 3 boys. They a are now in their 20’s. She was much more than a babysitter – she was also a confidant and sage adviser. Over the years we became friends and shared many family events. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. My thoughts are with Jen and Melissa and the whole family. With love, Donalda

  2. June and Joe Fagan

    Joe and I and our children are so sorry for the loss of Margaret. We had been neighbors for about thirty years, and it was always nice to see her out and about or at one of her grandchildren’s celebrations. Margaret was such a dedicated mother and grandmother, who always put her family first. We will remember her fondly and will keep her in our prayers. Sending our heartfelt condolences to the entire family, and especially to Melissa and Jen.
